There were four of us. Heavy bags loaded with camera gear and two bags worth of light-stands and a tripod. Somehow we managed to cram within the cubicle sized cab. It was early morning at around 6AM and we were traveling at the rate of knots on the expressway. All of a sudden, the rear tire ruptured with the cab in motion at 100km/hr.
Luckily the driver ignored the advice of pulling over to a side with the vehicle vibrating furiously after the tire burst. He kept cool and continued to balance the car in one straight line. If he would have pulled aside, no doubt it would have spelt doom with vehicles from behind appraoching at light speed. Eventually the cab came to a halt. Thank god, we all were safe. It was definitely, a lesson to live life better having stared at death up close. A lesson to not take each day for granted.
The point I want to drive home is, let 2015 be the best year. Merely announcing won’t do. Work hard, set goals, achieve them and continue to learn. Challenge yourself and explore the unexplored. Happy New Year 2015!
